New Delhi:

There is no question of Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh resigning after a police officer made allegations of corruption against him until investigation finds the truth, a state minister from the ruling alliance’s partner NCP has said.

Former Mumbai Police chief Param Bir Singh had alleged in a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray that Mr Deshmukh had “set a target to accumulate Rs 100 crore a year”.

Maharashtra minister Jayant Patil, who met with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar today, said after the meeting that their colleague will not be made to resign.

“The Maharashtra government has decided that whoever is found guilty in investigation will be punished,” Mr Patil said.
